6-pack solar LED landscape lights don't shed any light!

Following the initial charge that came on the first day, the solar lights do NOT light up- despite being outside for one week now- they do not shed any light at all. Why not and what can we do about it?

I am having the same problem, but am going to try putting in new rechargeable batteries. If you take the lights apart, you should find a rechargeable AA battery. I'm going to try it tonight and will let you know if it works.

We have an outside landscape light time that has quit working. Model pb115m1. Do you carry these?


Fixya does not sell timers or parts.

Timer system is not identified for certain.
If landscape system still turns on-off with override switch, then you can work around and buy cheap plug-in timer, set landscape to override, and plug landscape system into cheap timer.

1 Answer

Unit was working fine today. I was repairing some connections in the landscape lighting cables and checking each connection after completing it. At one point, I was testing the lighting and got nothing. ...


The power pack should make a humming sound when ON

1) Maybe power to the plug is off
Plug hair dryer into plug and see if it works
Check your GFCI resets in bathroom and kitchen
Check breaker in box

2) Maybe time of day needs to be set
Unplug power pack > plug back in > set on-off trippers
Rotate dial counterclockwise to present time
Then rotate dial two complete revolutions and return to present time

OUTSIDE FLOOD LIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON FOR 2 DAYS. IS THE SOLAR CELL TIMER BROKEN? HOW DO I TURN LIGHTS OFF?


I cannot find a manual on this timer.

If I was at your house, I would try the following:
1) Read the manual troubleshooting section
2) Check for dirt over the sensor
3) Turn off the circuit breaker to timer/ or unplug from wall
4) Re-power timer and then Re-program timer
5) If these steps don't work, the timer may have gone bad

And lastly, since many people do not have the manual, press it flat in a book for two days, scan it just like you scan a photograph or have Office Depot scan it onto a disk. Load photo of manual onto Imgur or Flikr photo-sharing and then post that link in a fixya question so others can see the manual

Malibu TDC PTST-30012 turns on in the middle of the day


1) Contact malibu lights directly.
Their site does not acknowledge TDC PTST-30012, so I cannot access a manual with best information.
Their products come with a warranty.
http://malibulights.com/customer_service/contact_us.aspx
http://malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

2) If unit can be set to override, you can buy cheap photo eye timer, and then plug power pack into cheap timer, but there is no guarantee this will work, or that power pack will burn out.
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-HB61RC-Digital-Outdoor-Control/dp/B00004W4X5

3) Buy ordinary power pack with dial-type timer, and then buy photo eye that fits.

http://store.nexternal.com/intermatic/categories.aspx?Keyword=ML814DRP&x=15&y=10

4) As electrician, I would not buy anything that costs more than $15 that comes with built-in photo eye that cannot be replaced.
Especially something as buggy as a low voltage power pack.

My intermatic tranformer used for lv landscape lighting just died. Power is on but unit is dead. Do I just replace it? Is there a fuse blown?


Check the circuit breaker. Try to cycle it manually by turning either the timer wheel or the rotating the small timer pin. If you don't hear a hum and get no output, it is probably dead. You might be able to fix it, but they are not that expensive, so I wouldn't bother. In fact, I have two used ones I would like to sell because they are overkill now that I have put in a lot of LED lights.

1 Answer

Have a low volt intermatic transformer where only one side works.


If you have 2 sets of A and B terminals, then power pack is usually rated for 600 watts, with 300Watts on each A and B.
I don't know how to tell what wattage power pack is, except add up total watt amount of bulbs that originally came with unit. That should give approximate value of power pack wattage.
